It depends on the configuration.  If you have 1024 cylinders, 255 heads,
and 63 sectors you would have 8.4 GB or 7.8 GiB (the former is the digital
count the latter is the binary count).  Assuming you are calculating
digitally (the standard drive manufacturers use) that would give you about
8.2 MB per cylinder.  If you had a configuration of 1024 cylinders, 16
heads, and 63 sectors you would have 528 MB and only 0.5 MB per cylinder.

528 MB = 528,482,304 bytes = 1024 cylinders * 16 heads * 63 sectors * 512
bytes
